Spicy Peanut Butter Hummus

What you need: 

1 can organic chick peas (garbanzo beans)
juice of one lemon
6 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon organic tahini
2 tablespoon organic peanut butter
1 teaspoon habanera sauce (or more!)
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
water, to consistency
paprika (garnish)
olive oil (garnish)

What you do: 

Strain and rinse the chick peas. This recipe calls for none of the brine. Add them and the rest of the ingredients to a food processor. Add more water or lemon juice to desired consistency. Scoop into a bowl and drizzle olive oil over top, sprinkle with paprika.
This hummus is a bit spicy, and gets more so after a day or so in the fridge. I usually add more of the habanera sauce. The dip makes an excellent sandwich spread. My 20 month old daughter can handle the heat, can you?

This recipe didn't turn out right for me. I added less garlic than the recipe called for and it was still an overwhelming taste of garlic and the peanutbutter didn't seem to match with the rest of the flavors. Perhaps omitting the peanutbutter would make it better?


This hummus is totally awesome!  I used just regular hot sauce and used lime juice.  Really, ridiculously delicious :>
